Documentation in Family Tree

Now that FamilySearch Family Tree is available, there is an opportunity and need to enter sources for each piece of vital information. Entering all the documentation that one has may require the uploading/transferring of many individual sources. The "Documents Attached to Individuals in Family Tree" form has been designed to keep track of exactly which sources have been entered and whether or not an image of the document was included.

The source(S) may be entered with Title, Where found, and Description details in one's Source Box. Then this source can be attached to the appropriate individual in the Family Tree. It is also possible, using a sources' URL, to add the document image (I) to that source thus making it possible to view the actual document in Family Tree.
